D.C. Police Seek Man In Connection With Three Violent Robberies

D.C. police say three recent violent robberies may be related, and are looking for a man they believed stabbed two women in the neck.

In each instance a man snuck up behind a woman with a knife and robbed her. In two of them, the woman was stabbed in the neck.

Two of the attacks happened Wednesday night, one near Gallaudet University and the other in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. The first reported incident happened last week also in the Capital Hill neighborhood.

Police are looking for a person of interest, described as a black man between 30 and 40 years old. They say he stands between 5'7" and 5'9", has a stocky or athletic build and either has short hair or is bald.

Police are asking anyone with information to call (202) 727-9099.
